    Thanks for your brief explanation.

    You know what? SVF eXtractor by GezoeSloog has been flagged as malicious by five engines on VirusTotal.

    GezoeSloog should have provided us the source code of said extractor.

    I'm not surprised. Why?

    SHA-2 family of FIPS 180 is susceptible to checksum collisions.

    Did you mean that I could always compare the checksums of the Franken-ISO with the original ISOs released by MVS?

    Won't it be easier to just download the target ISOs from MVS?

    Let's consider the following scenario:

    1. I downloaded the ISO released by MVS in April.
    2. There are two updates released by MVS in May.
    3. I use SVF to apply the May updates to the April ISO.
    4. I have a Franken-ISO that has the May updates.
    5. I compare the SHA-1 hashsum of the Franken-ISO with the May ISO released by MVS. Their hashsums must be identical, right?

    Won't it be easier to just simply download the May ISO when it's released by MVS? After all, I need to compare the checksum of the Franken-ISO with the target ISO (in this example, it's the May ISO).

    In addition, you wrote that an *.svf file is the exact difference between two official MVS ISOs (base and target). It means that someone already has in his possession the target ISO (released by MVS). Why can't he simply upload the target ISO to some free file-hosting sites? In my opinion, it's much easier and less time-consuming to just upload the target ISO than to produce an *.svf file and then share it here or on some websites.

    The only scenario where applying *.svf files is advantageous is when bandwidth and download speed are severely constrained. I don't have these problems because I'm able to download a 5GB-ish ISO in just two minutes.

    Do you have any idea how many ISOs he's supposed to download and then reload every month?

    Well, if he's a superfast internet connection (I'm thinking of at least 3 Gbps speed) and unlimited bandwidth, he can download all the ISOs within 10 days, yes? Like 10 ISOs per day? (After all, MVS only releases the ISOs once a month......)

    Just so you know.... I've read the tutorials on SVF patching many months ago and I thought it would be better for me to wait for MVS to release the ISOs. After all, I ain't in a hurry to download them. I download the ISO in case I need to reinstall Microsoft Windows 10 due to hardware failure.

    MVS usually releases Windows 10 1909 ISOs (updated to May 2020) at the end of May. Just be patient.

    If you can't wait because you need the ISO to reinstall your OS, you could reinstall it using the April ISO. When your OS is up and running, use Windows Update to download the latest security fixes. That's what I would do if I were you.

    This will not help to eliminate false positives of an unknown AVs @ VT

    Aha, I live in a middle of the data center :haha:

    I could give you direct MVS links (which lives only 10 hours BTW)
    Are you ready to upload 600GB+...2TB+ of files monthly? :mushy:
